Melody Gardot's music has been described as "a touch of Peggy Lee's poetry with a hint of Norah Jones and Joni Mitchell." Her debut CD, 2008's Worrisome Heart, topped the jazz charts and helped earn the singer Billboard's Top New Jazz Artist award.

My One and Only Thrill, Gardot's sophomore album, is no less sophistocated, mixing original songs co-written with Grammy winner Jesse Harris with a brilliant take on the Wizard of Oz chestnut "Over the Rainbow." Production from Grammy winner Larry Klein and tasteful orchestrations from Vince Mendoza enhance Melody’s unique approach to songwriting.
